AGES 11–14


In grades 6, 7, and 8 of our private, international middle school in Central Florida that includes boarding from the 7th grade, our mission is to create well-rounded students. At Windermere Prep Middle School, our students are exposed to an engaging curriculum, one that features hands-on experiences and requires the ownership of learning. We concentrate on the “4 C’s” of communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking, woven throughout our campus, classrooms, events, and student body.

Introduction to the Windermere Prep Middle School Program

At Windermere Preparatory Middle School, our Program of Study focuses on building critical thinkers and problem solvers working at an advanced level, and we engage students in integrated studies that encourage independent thought and the application of their learning. We weave the “4 C’s” of communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking throughout our campus, classrooms, events, and student body. Our cross-curricular program prepares our middle school students for high school, college, and life beyond while helping them discover their full potential.

Our Middle School teachers work together to create cross-curricular learning experiences, bringing lessons to life in meaningful ways. Because each age group is unique, we have distinct goals for each grade level. Our program capitalizes on each grade’s special qualities, centered around a global theme that connects learning to essential truths: “Opening the Book” (6th grade), Writing My Story” (7th grade), and “Turning a Page” (8th grade). Learn more about the different elements of our middle school.
